comment Grub2 won't install on fresh Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server installation
In Debian, there is Expert Install, there you can drop to shell. This might be in Ubuntu too.

Drop to shell and extend your question with errors from the /var/log/syslog.

comment vsftpd and home directories of chrooted local users
There is an option local_root which I'm using, so the users are chrooted there. The question is why to shortly change to home before this.

comment LDAP and pam without binddn and anonymous access
Why couldn't I just map mruser to uid=mruser,cn=users,dc=ibm,dc=com?

comment LDAP and pam without binddn and anonymous access
Yes, you've understood everything correctly. The admins however do not have the users separated into groups, just a long list of them.(do not ask me why)So each normal user can only bind. Each admin user can search through all the people in the directory. And that's why I was looking for a workaround...

comment LDAP and pam without binddn and anonymous access
@MadHatter Well, partially. I would like each user to authenticate himself. The result of this authentication should be enough for me... How else can I have an access to LDAP, but only to the data of the users that do authenticate on my server...

comment Samba: read-only LDAP + additional local users
1. Yes, you have understood it correctly: I have read-only access to a remote LDAP server; 2. You can use remote LDAP for authentication with security model user too(passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://<your-hostname>). So now I'm even more confused.

comment Why specific rouing rule is added after VPN connection is setup on Linux?
In example I will use '$ route -n' notation. Before VPN connection was setup I had 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 Routing table afterward looks like following: 193.196.65.76 192.168.0.1; 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1; 147.38.45.1 0.0.0.0 iface ppp0 So I can understand why "147.38.45.1 0.0.0.0 iface ppp0" is added. This is the IP of a server in VPN. But I do not understand why "193.196.65.76 192.168.0.1" is added, 193.196.65.76 is IP of dialin server. Maybe it's just a precaution for the case IP of dialin server is in VPN network?!
